Musée de la Vie romantique, Paris

(3.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Devoted to the artists, writers, and composers of the Romantic period, Musée de la Vie romantique was the Paris base of Dutch-born painter Ary Scheffer (1795–1858). For decades, Scheffer and his daughter hosted Friday evening salons, attracting the likes of George Sand, Frederic Chopin, Eugène Delacroix, Franz Liszt, Gioacchino Rossini, and singer Pauline Viardot. Later in the century, Charles Dickens, Ivan Turgueniev, and Charles Gounod attended regularly. The museum displays numerous mementos of these luminaries, as well as Romantic-era paintings, sculptures, and objets d'art.

  • beautiful home in beautiful garden where a tea can be drunk if it is warmer. The House creates a nice atmosphere, the life of George Sant.

  • Since the time that I had to visit this Museum! We went as a family and hidden at the end of a long driveway shaded we discovered this pretty cottage in pastel colors. There is not many people, so we took the time to stroll through the small parts and make a leap backward, in the nineteenth... A very nice trip that I recommend to all!

  • Interesting if participation at a conference (2 h with a guide) appeased any small museum inside an alley paved in a nice setting

  • Artist's retreat, complete with long shaded walkway, courtyard and outbuildings. The rooms are all decorated with authentic styles and materials. There are lots of artifacts to be seen involving the author George Sand and painter Ary Scheffer. Worthwhile if you have an interest in 19th century life in Paris.
  • The most romantic and idilic museum in Paris. The entrance is free. After visiting the museum you can hang out in the garden, there is a little coffee shop
  • Kind of interesting, but I don't think it was necessarily worth visiting during a short stay in Paris.
  • A charming place with a small tea room in the courtyard. The museum is tiny so it is a quick visit.
  • Small interesting museum, mainly focusing on Georges sand and her feminist past. Lovely garden when you can sit and have a wonderful cup of tea
